System administrators will like how easy it is to remotely lock networked machines using this helpful tool. As a command-line-only tool, ChaoticVisions QuickLock lacks a GUI, Help file, or even help parameter. The single paragraph installation read-me is all the user guidance offered.
Luckily, it's easy to use the utility. Open a command window. Enter the command and password as a parameter for the computer name to lock. That's it. If you're trying to lock an XP, you'll have to allow Remote Lock through the Windows Firewall, but that's explained in the read-me.
This may be an easy tool to use, but it's geared to system admins, lab managers, and anyone with a family network. As freeware, ChaoticVisions QuickLock fills a need at the perfect price.
